  1. The Rape Clause

    Possibly because I'm in York, this issue has passed me by, but I have noticed arguments starting to appear on my Twitter feed (the operation of which I don't fully understand). Would someone explain this issue for me, in as non-partisan terms as possible, please. That probably excludes Ronaldo 😁
